The 2024 Tour de France will see the number of Australians on the start line halved from last year’s bumper crop but forget any notion that this means the nation will fade into the background at the biggest race on the calendar.

Among the six Australian riders at the Tour, there is plenty of potential for them to be highly visible at crucial junctures, both in the mountains, on the flat and in between. A number are entering the race in crucial support roles though many things can happen over 21 days so it isn't out of the question that those roles could evolve.
